Experience With Biosimilars: I have tried the biosimilar to remicade. I had a severe reaction to it. Racing heart, heaviness in chest, hard to breathe, rash and hives. It 2 hours to come out of it. 2 weeks later I was started in remicade. I have had small reactions but nothing like the first.

Medicare required it. They would pay for the remicade without first trying the slightly less expensive biosimilar first.

Did your doctor give you a reason for using the biosimilar first? C
